Distinctly in the “this didn’t need to be made” category, as well as the “this is obviously made for an audience that isn’t me” category as well. The camera angles, storylines, and special effects feel more like a Chinese made movie than any other Disney movie I’ve seen, and actually reminds a whole bunch of a Netflix series named “Ice Fantasy“, for better or worse.
There’s a ton of justified outrage from Americans who are horrified to hear about the slave labor taking place in the same area that Disney filmed this, and horrified to hear the lead actress denounce democratic supporters in Hong Kong. The sad thing is, with how much noticeable CGI and weird special effects choices, this could have been filmed on the Moon and no one would be able to tell the difference between the two versions.
To end on a positive note though, the costumes were fantastic, huge fan of the fashion going on here.
